Kirstie Alley has been in many popular TV shows and movies over the years: Cheers, Veronica’s Closet, Look Who’s Talking and more. She has two Emmys and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And yet she’s also famous for her very public struggles with her weight. But recently it’s transpired that Alley has a serious health condition.
In fact, Alley’s weight has been the subject of intense discussion for a long time. She does, after all, work in an industry where image is key and being thin is considered the most desirable body shape. And Alley is far from the only celebrity who’s flaunted a “big reveal” of weight loss, such as the moment when she appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show in just a bikini.
